Carter, Staten Unsatisfied After WVU Win

West Virginia gained the season sweep it had to have with a come-from-behind 76-72 win over fading Kansas State on Wednesday. Here, Jevon Carter and Juwan Staten detail the victory, and what gaining a 19th win means heading into a difficult closing stretch.

A discouraged Carter, who finished with 10 points and two rebounds in 15 minutes of play, discusses his disappointment in the late turnovers by the Mountaineers, the inability to seal the game when ahead 10 and the missed free throws and other aspects of lackadaisical effort and execution which allowed the Wildcats to eventually take the lead and force WVU to rally to remain in a third place tie in the Big 12.

Staten, again plagued by late free throw misses, talks about the mental focus lost, the ups and downs of a given game and season, his thoughts on why the play deteriorated and disintegrated over the final six-plus minutes and gives a look ahead to a key game at Iowa State on Saturday, piggybacked by a home contest with top 10 Kansas on Monday.
